Holika Holika Snail BB Cream V.S Skin79 Hot pink




Earlier this month I made an announcement that Skin79 is restructuring their market pricing and will push their legal authorize dealers to follow this market change. Since PRETTY&CUTE™ (Yup we been officially trademarked since 1/30/13 yay)  is Skin79 largest distribution company in the U.S we would have no choice to follow this price change. Currently only Skin79 North America and Pretty&Cute is recognize as Authorize distributors in the North America region. Skin79northamerica.com is located in Canada and handles Canada distributing. Prettyandcute.com handles the U.S Market.

I think this change has to do with competing with Dr. Jart's pricing in the U.S. Dr. Jart has a strict pricing guideline because of Sephora. Skin79 needs to reconstruct their market value if they want to pursue the U.S Market.

Skin79 Hot Pink and  VIP Gold are our biggest sellers. People really like how the Skin79 oxidizes. Since we started in 2008, we now carry over 50 different types of bb cream. It's overwhelming even for me to decide which bb cream to use sometimes. I find bb cream different from foundation because each BB cream oxidizes differently. Only the Lioele Beyond the Solution BB Cream 50ml stays true to it's color. However that is only good news if your skin tone is that exact same shade as the Lioele Beyond the Solution BB Cream 50ml. The skin79 BB creams comes only in those shades because in most cases it oxidize within several shades of it's original color. That means if you are a little bit darker than the original color, you will slowly see it oxidizes into a more matching color to your skin tone as the day goes by.

Majority of our customers are at the range of NC30-NC35. This is the perfect skin tone matching the Skin79 Hot Pink & VIP Gold. So I went on a BB cream hunt for a similar shade as the Skin79 bb creams.


The Holika Holika: Prime Miracle Snail BB Cream SPF30++ has a very close color comparison to the Skin79 bb creams. The Holika Holika: Prime Miracle Snail BB Cream SPF30++ was one of my top choices to try first. Snail products has became increasingly popular within the past few years. It's news of it's powerful anti-aging hit the Korean market like a rapid fire. One cosmetic company came out with a snail product every cosmetic company came out with snail products. I'm projecting within the next couple of years this will have the same effect in the U.S market. 


The first Snail BB cream I saw was the Missha Snail BB cream. I spotted it when I was in Korea. At that time it was still fairly new. Especially to me since I was a traveler. I've never been a fan of Missha products, so I took some testers and  left. After I came back from Korea I started getting news from all the cosmetic companies I work with that they are coming out with a snail bb cream and that I need to learn about the effects of snail.

So I took their knowledge course and find that Snail bb cream is super beneficial for our skin. I mean it's organic. Nothing is more pure on our skin than something that was produce naturally.

How to Apply:
Take an appropriate amount and apply a small dab to your cheeks, forehead, and chin. With the tips of your fingers spread bb cream evenly throughout your face. To avoid bb cream from caking, let sit for 5 minutes before building bb cream up for more coverage, and before apply any loose powders to set it with.




 The Holika Holika: Prime Miracle Snail BB Cream SPF30++ doesn't have a gray cast like most bb cream. It oxidize to a more mellow yellow tone which is perfect for most Asians. This BB cream does contain SPF, so in my book it's a day coverage solution. If you wear it at night, it will make you look pale as a ghost. >.<



With my super pale chubby hand you can see the BB cream seams to oxidized very closed to my skin tone. It covered the vein that is located on the right side of my hand. It has very good coverage compare to most BB cream I've used.




The original color of two BB cream is very similar. 


However the Holika Holika: Prime Miracle Snail BB Cream SPF30++ on the right has a more yellowish tone compare to the skin79 hot pink once it's oxidized. 




So in conclusion I would prefer the Holika Holika: Prime Miracle Snail BB Cream SPF30++ over the Skin79 because of it's healing and anti-aging properties. Also the yellowish tone suits my skin color more. Maybe because I'm super pale, I find the grey cast doesn't go away no matter how long I let it sit for. The only con about this bb cream which is true to a lot of bb creams is that it tends to get a bit oily, so retouch is a must. If you have super oily skin, remember to use a makeup fixer or powder to absorb the oil. 

I hope you guys find this review and comparison helpful. I will be back with more reviews and comparison soon. Let me know if there is any BB cream you particularly want me to do a review on. Thanks for visiting my blog! <3
